It comes down to this: black people were stripped of our identities when we were brought here, and it's been a quest since then to define who we are.
Spike Lee is a one-stop-shop. He’s a screenwriter, producer & director. It is quite fair to say that he inspired and paved the way for Tyler Perry.
Lee has film classics dating back to 1983. It was one of his recent films that left me in awe. It was not from his pen but Nate Parker’s screenwriting talents, but the story, American Skin, was mind shattering.
It’s streaming now on Amazon Prime.
